-checking governor romney after last week's debate. you should know nbc news has not granted either campaign permission to use our news material and immediately requested that the campaign refrain from using nbc news material in this and future advertisements. the obama commercial uses only a short clip from a truth squad report that, in fact, pointed out exaggerations and/or misstatements that both candidates made during the debate. just want to make that clear. >>> mitt romney has accused the president of failure of leadership. also failure of leadership that's emboldened iran and other u.s. adversaries abroad in the middle east and north africa. >> this president's policies haven't been equal to our best examples of world leadership. nowhere is this more evident than in the middle east. i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in other countries lies solely with those who carried them out. no one else. but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not t

that that debate has really, really helped mitt romney. >> yeah, i don't think the romney campaign could have wanted to do any more with this debate than they did. if you look across the board at these numbers, wolf, romney has made gains in almost every area including somebody who's better able to improve the jobs situation. he leads -- romney leads obama by eight points on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minu
romney, especially on the heels of mitt romney's strong performance during that debate, he's already looking at victory and they are sort of teasing their supporters saying, look, he thinks he's going to win this thing so donate now. they are pushing really hard. why are they doing this? because they need money in the key battleground states. the race is very close nationwide, but specifically in these battleground states like ohio, virginia, also in florida, those are states where a lot of money is being poured in for the ground operation and the wall-to-wall tv ads you see. they are pulling in a lot of money but a lot of money is going out the door. >> dan lothian, of course, on thursday we'll be watching the vice presidential debate as well. appreciate it, dan. >>> people are picking a president today in venezuela. there's the man trying to hold on to the job. president hugo chavez. he voted today in caracas. since chavez was first elected 13 years ago, today's contest was the strongest challenge to his role. latin america is certainly paying close attention to this important elec
ball, but two, two enormous balls. ha-ha-ha! >> mitt romney won the debate last night, which means president obama lost two fights on his anniversary last night. the president seemed a little bit out of it last night. he had all the enthusiasm of a husband talking to his wife's friends at a dinner party. he kept looking down and frowning. it was like he was trying to find something on apple maps. the only thing that could have salvaged obama's performance is if the body of bin laden could have fell from the ceiling onto the stage. >> obama could have waterboarded alladin, put down blue, deported dora the explorer and won walking away. romney won with the sound off. look up, look up. what are you writing's so important? oh, that's -- that is impressive work. >> oh, my gosh, i love that. >> finally, to another race, one as close as the presidential contest. >> family circle's, cookie bake-off, ann romney's m & m, versus michelle obama's white and dark chocolate chip cookies. >> another waner by 51 pptd 5% to 41.5%, 287 votes, michelle obama takes the sweep. here's a look at the cooki
romney square off in denver for the first of three critical debates. president's being prepped in nevada today. and the gop challenger has some ground to make up because a brand-new "washington post"/abc news poll this morning has the president leading by two percentage points among likely voters. it's not unusual for candidates to try to lower expectations in the days leading up to dedebate. republicans have been playing up the president's eloquence, ever since last week. but it seems somebody forgot to tell new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside down is what he says. in just a few minutes we're going to be talking about wednesday night's debate and the president's preparations with brad woodhouse, communications director for the democratic national committee. f
. romney bent the truth in the debate but was never called out. and i asked if he thought the moderator had bungled the responsibility. >> i think the moderators job is to make sure that the things that have been said on the stage is congruent to the things said in the past. not to call them a liar. >> if he has facts about what someone said. but it is up to the president to defend himself. >> absolutely. absolutely. i'm not trying to say the president should not take responsibility for his awful performance. he should have. but some criticism to the moderator is also justified. >> don, what the liberals is doing is postdebate spinning. it's whining. there's no whining in politics. there's one person who should have challenged what mitt romney was saying. his name is president barack obama. and he didn't do it. everyone else doing it afterwards doesn't carry the same punch. and i agree with l.z. it ways bit of both. it was a lot of both. president obama was way off. and mitt romney was very much on his game. i don't remember where debate where's it's hard to think of a memorable gaffe or a

to be getting tight other after governor romney's strong performance in last week's presidential debate a new "gallup poll" taken in the first three days after the faceoff, shows the two contenders locked into a dead-heat, 47% each. what does governor romney's team need to do to keep up the momentum? erin mcpike, national political reporter for "real clear politics.". erin, i know a lot of republicans are saying the momentum has swung governor romney's way. it is a sprint to the finish line. you seem to be a little more cautious about that. why? >> i am because i'm looking at "real clear politics" polling averages of all the battleground states and the president is still ahead in big states he needs to win like wisconsin and ohio. he also still winning in new hampshire and nevada. and when you add those states to the electoral college map, it shows still that it's a tough way for mitt romney to go. he has got to win more than just say virginia and florida if he can win those now. jon: how many of those polls that "real clear politics" averages, how many have been taken post-debate, do you kno

's going to happen after the debate is that all the romney and obama forces come out in droves to tell you how brilliantly each side did while before the debate, up until now, they say each side is essentially an idiot. they can't debate, barely walk, talk, and chew gum at the same time. that's called lowering expectations. who can blame them? i built a career on it. this guy didn't have to do that. one of the most widely respected figures in washington. he is many say of national to denver himself. he could be in the presidential circle, senator john thune. good to see you, senator. >> good to see you and be with you as always. neil: i covered a few debates. we're going into them, each guy sells their guy to the closest thing as an idiot, and no matter how poorly he did, he's a genius. >> right. neil: what are we to derive from that? >> well, this has become, and i think it's partly fueled by the media -- neil: here we go, sorry. >> the expectations game, neil. i think both sides want to exceed examinations, obviously, and when they go into a debate, it's not so much about beating the oth
